Syllabus:

This course focuses on the synthesis and characterisation of materials and their applications. It covers supramolecular chemistry, with an emphasis on the synthesis and structures of metallo-supramolecular assemblies. In addition to discussing the structures and approaches to synthesising metallo-supramolecular assemblies, the properties of selected compounds are discussed. The chemistry and applications of porous extended materials is presented. Materials such as zeolites, metal-organic frameworks and porous carbons is used as an introduction to principles of gas adsorption, storage and separation, as well as experimental characterisation of porous materials. Finally, polymer chemistry is addressed, with a focus on synthetic methods. Polymer structure and properties, natural and synthetic polymers, copolymers, step-growth and chain-growth polymers, and natural and synthetic rubbers are covered.
